Students are expected to complete all courses for which they are registered at the close of the Add/Drop Period. These courses will appear on the transcript, count as attempted hours, and except for withdrawals allowed under this policy, receive grades used in the GPA calculation. Undergraduate students may receive a grade of W for no more than 16 credit hours over their academic careers. Students who withdraw under approved extenuating circumstances will receive “WE” grades that do not count against this 16-hour limit. Both types of withdrawal are subject to all financial aid and satisfactory academic progress rules.
